Hi everyone,

I am wondering wheather I have a false positive or a real trojan , heres story:

I try to start a game called counter strike that runs off of a program called steam. Everytime i try doing so, a thing from norton says that it has blocked a trojan virus, and that my computer is safe. When it does this, it stops the game from starting. I go to the log to figure out where this trojan is. This is the directory i get C:\Documents and Settings\hp owner\Local Settings\Temp\~57A.tmp Then I check that directory , and there is no such file there.

Is this a false positive? Is it a trojan? If it is a trojan, do you know how to remove it?

Thanks alot :D

Run a scan of your machine with the F Secure Online Scanner Have it clean anything that it finds.
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently

If you want to run that scan you need to use internet explorer, it will not recognize firefox.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
